When it comes to medical marijuana in California, it's available through dispensaries, collectives and cooperatives. And the Lodi City Council wants nothing to do with any of them. During a meeting Tuesday morning, the council unilaterally voiced its opposition to any type of organized marijuana group within city limits.

The discussion was meant to help city staff develop an ordinance that sets the city's position on marijuana distribution. A previously established city moratorium on dispensaries is set to expire in April, and the ordinance is scheduled to take effect at the same time.

    there are people who could have had benefit from this. I wonder why it was dismissed so quickly. Doug could be right.

    The 4 senior citizens that passed this ordinance will surely bring the ACLU and other organizations with lawsuits that will cost Lodi taxpayers plenty. Thanks amigos!
